The Met has released some highlights of its 2013–14 “Met Museum Presents” program, and there are quite a few gems. Among the concerts and talks are shows in a variety of galleries with new works by downtown avant-garde composer John Zorn (it’s his 60th birthday this year and has a lot going on around down), the complete Bartók String Quartet Cycle with guest appearances from the Dirty Projectors’ David Longstretch and vocalist Iva Bittová, and conversations hosted by writer Adam Gopnik called “1913: The World Implodes.” The full release, rich with the museum’s offerings, follows below.
